Main Street's lower middle market investments are made to support management buyouts, recapitalizations, growth financings and acquisitions of companies that operate in diverse industry sectors and generally have annual revenues ranging from $10 million to $100 million.  Main Street seeks to partner with entrepreneurs, business owners and management teams and generally provides "one stop" financing alternatives within its lower middle market portfolio. Main Street also maintains a portfolio of privately placed, interest-bearing debt investments in middle market businesses that are generally larger in size than its lower middle market portfolio companies.FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTSThis press release contains forward-looking statements which are based upon Main Street management's current expectations and are inherently uncertain. Any such statements other than statements of historical fact are likely to be affected by other unknowable future events and conditions, including elements of the future that are or are not under Main Street's control, and that Main Street may or may not have considered; accordingly, such statements cannot be guarantees or assurances of any aspect of future performance. Actual performance and results could vary materially from these estimates and projections of the future. Such statements speak only as of the time when made and are based on information available to Main Street as of the date hereof and are qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement. Main Street assumes no obligation to revise or update any such statement now or in the future.Distributable net investment income per share is net investment income per share as determined in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, or GAAP, excluding the per share impact of share-based compensation expense which is non-cash in nature. Main Street believes presenting distributable net investment income per share is a useful and appropriate supplemental disclosure for analyzing its financial performance since share-based compensation does not require settlement in cash. However, distributable net investment income per share is a non-GAAP measure and should not be considered as a replacement to net investment income per share and other earnings measures presented in accordance with GAAP.  Instead, distributable net investment income per share should be reviewed only in connection with such GAAP measures in analyzing Main Street's financial performance.  In order to reconcile estimated distributable net investment income per share to estimated net investment income per share in accordance with GAAP, $0.02 to $0.03 per share of estimated share-based compensation expense is added back to estimated net investment income per share.Per share amounts exclude the earnings attributable to the remaining noncontrolling equity interest in Main Street's majority owned subsidiary, Main Street Capital II, LP, not owned by Main Street.Contacts:Main Street Capital CorporationDwayne L.
